A Message To The Wolf

  One Russian poet said that there is one person    you had never seen, only his reflection. That's     yourself.   Our     US media    people should be advised to look at their reflections   from time to time. By reflections I mean the media people (and their product) of the so-called new democracies- the countries which are officially     our followers, the new darlings of     predatory capitalism, democracy and   human     rights" Amen, cha- cha-cha.


Russian   media   is one of the most interesting   reflections because   they think that they have a special mission- to cure   Russian people from the "Soviet' legacy; that is to purge them from the   embedded values of sharing, empathy, compassion,   consideration of the common good,   disgust   with thievery, etc. Apparently those folks in the current Russian media consider that they have learned the proper attitude from ours and are all eager   to   prove their prowess: their writings are boring, very ignorant, full of malice and totally out of phase with   any reality.   Reflection, you know.


One of the so-called     columnists on the official Russian media site   came   out once   with the revelation.   He     wrote   a     column about us, people being wolves.


According to   that   wizard the main problem of   Russian people is empathy. They feel uneasy when taking money from someone else, pursuing selfish profits or     seeing other people visibly suffer from the results of their actions.   That, according to him is a cardinal vice attributed to the passive life     of the   socialist past.    He   encourages   the new generation of Russians   to embrace their inner wolfish character. He preaches that it is normal for all people to be wolfish towards each other and that is what should be expected.   Everyone is for thyself.    Selfishness is terrific. Greed is good (as if he watched Wall Street movie twenty times). Do not feel guilty of anything; if people whose lives you have destroyed complain, it is because they    are sore losers.   You   are   the King.   Take whatever you can. Take everything.   If you want to succeed   look in the mirror at yourself   in the morning and bare your fangs. Then smile at yourself. You are terrific.


I am not kidding, that's what they write. See, our followers in other countries are not Lutherans. They do not have     the legacy of hypocrisy which we have here and which   helps our   predatory ideologues to   conceal their fangs under the   smirks.   They are in a hurry to get into the game. Life is short and they   have   less opportunities and less wealth to play with. So for them it is as good as it gets;     the   big teacher in the US   formulates the principles and the howling puppies in Russia are ready to squeal. The have no fangs, they have no teeth even     but they are anxious to   become   wolves, eager to learn and to throw away   all those unnecessary vices   of humanity their parents had fought and died for. They are not a generation X or Y. They are a generation W (look at our W for a moment) and   they     think they are the salt of the Universe.


That's their message to us. And here's is the answer: If you are a wolf you will be shot from the helicopter for fun. You will not     be able to bare your fangs,   you, stupid bastard.   Big   guys   in powerful machines   will   spot you on the ground, chase you, harass you and shoot you    so that they could skin you and then show that skin as a trophy. That's what we do   to    ignorant idiots all over the world, whenever we can inject our spiritual poison that makes people voluntarily to abandon their humanity and become wolves. Yes, that's real fun: first    you   become   a wolf   because you think   you will hunt someone but   in reality you become a prey and then we come with guns and helicopters and shoot   you for fun. See, we can't do that to humans. It is not fashionable to shoot humans. But   as   for wolves- no problem here. So, good luck, my dear apt pupils whether in Russia, China, Vietnam or Albania. Good luck with your transformation. We are ready. Our helicopters are powerful, our guns are terrific, our ammo is deadly. There is a new market consisting of numerous   rich   folks bored to death and eager to   entertain themselves in a hunt.   You wanted it. Here it comes.
